At least my HOA has guys who will actually get up at 4am to shovel the paths and in front of people's garages - bless them!
That brings back memories of when I lived in Denver. Broadway would have four or six inches of standing snow on it, even after the snow had stopped. If plows had made any passes on it, it was impossible to tell. But most of the parking lots on each side were scraped right down to the asphalt.

Seriously if you want to have your residential street plowed in Denver. You are better of getting together with you neighbors and hiring some guy with a pickup truck and a blade to do it. If you count on the city, you might as well just wait for the sun to do it.

I tried driving to the grocery store & bank today, not much more than a mile away, and it was hell..... I almost couldn't get past where I was parked, the street had a over 6", and I wasn't getting any traction. Then I was puzzled why the little shopping area the grocery was in hadn't hired someone to plow the parking lot. It was all slushy, with big puddles of water, and I could barely push the shopping cart to my car, I guess I just don't get it. In a place where it snows often, not having streets & parking lots plowed makes no sense....
Is it really not worth having tax dollars go to allowing us to get to work & stores, etc? I sure don't see that as "big government".... And the hours lost in travel delays, potential cost of accidental damage to your car, property, or others' cars, etc, all that to save a few tax dollars?
